Does your child struggle to concentrate or maintain focus?
Do they have difficulty learning or is their behaviour becoming disruptive?
A Brighton Wellness Group, we are strongly committed to helping children reach their full potential.
We all want the best for our children
This includes helping them to develop and grow both physically and mentally. With 1 in 16 school aged children now being diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and more than 1 in 150 being diagnosed with autism, we must begin asking, “Is there something more that we can do?”
Even without a diagnosis, many children struggle with various aspects of cognitive function and learning including memory, judgement, problem solving and language development.
For some kids, getting the brain to quieten down and switch off from distractions can be a huge challenge, both in the classroom and at home. This can contribute to poor concentration, decreased focus, and learning difficulties.
Where to begin
The best way to ensure your children are getting the nutrients they need is to provide fresh, healthy food including fruit and vegetables, and quality protein at every meal. Healthy kids also need plenty of play and physical activity, and adequate rest and sleep.
What we can do
Poor learning or behaviour does not need to be an inevitable part of life. The good news is that there are certain nutrients and herbs that work together to improve concentration and cognitive function, reduce background noise or distractions and stop our children from being left behind at school.
By looking at a child’s genetic profile, our Naturopath’s can identify the increased need for Vitamin D and individual nutrients. Iodine and Vitamin D are essential nutrients for healthy brain development and function which are commonly deficient in children in Australia and New Zealand. By offering guidance with dietary changes and supporting supplements, we can help your child to alleviate the causes of their behavioural or learning difficulties in a safe and natural way.
